Or maybe Milky Quartz as it's not all pure white.

Is it just regular quartz that is white?

Anyone cab with it?

Thanks,

James

cabs great - looks nice as rings and pendants - really nice if it has gold inclusions.

The material I have looks just like low-grade rose quartz, except it's white.  It was easy to cab.

I've used some, actually quite a few.  The white quarts was mixed with the stones that xero-scape my yard.







Polished up real nice..................

White Quartz is gorgeous.
I have a few cabs of it cut by Connie.  She called it "Bull quartz." 
It's great paired with silver and since it's a neutral color it pairs well with a lot of other gemstones.

I have had a closer look at the white quartz at the place I get my rocks from and
think I will wait. In the picture most of it looks more like foggy clear quartz.

I wanted solid white. I know it's just a picture and not a true representation of
what you get but still leery enough to think about it some more.

Are you looking for a piece of white quartze? I have a few prices that I was going to cut up and make a doublet with black jade to try carving somthing with a white background
Here is a picture it came from the snakeskin agate area near Austen Nevada it looks more like jasper because I cannot see any light thru it

I was looking for a few pieces. Anyway, I decided to take a chance and ordered
a small amount to see what I get. Hopefully there are a few good pieces that I
can use.

If it isn't white enough let me know, I will cut a piece and polish it to see how it looks and if it's white for what you want I can send it to you
